Father’s Day Gift Ideas for The Caribbean Dad

Father’s Day is fast approaching and we’ve got some great gift ideas for our Dads of the Caribbean. These six gift ideas range from the simple to the sublime and no matter which gift you choose, you won’t disappoint him (although, he’ll probably love anything that’s not another necktie).

  1. Bootleg Chocolates – Bahamas

These chocolates are inspired by The Islands of The Bahamas. Using premium European chocolate, they incorporate flavours of the islands such as rum, key lime, goat pepper and hibiscus. Chocolates aren’t usually given to men as gifts, but with these unique flavor combination Dad is sure to be a fan.

2. Coffee and breakfast, at Cafe Blue – Jamaica

Involved in the complete process of coffee making from picking the coffee cherry in Jamaica’s Blue Mountains to roasting and brewing a fresh cup, this award winning Cafe has three locations on the island. But don’t just go there for the premium coffee – treat Dad to  a breakfast fit for a king. Don’t forget to pick up a bag of freshly ground beans for him brew at home so he’ll think of you with each pot.

3. Mount Gay Rum Tours – Barbados

The oldest rum distillery in the Caribbean offers a cocktail tour for the amateur and wanna-be mixologist – every Dad’s secret ambition.  For USD$50.00 your Dad can learn how to create his very own signature drink from the Mount Gay Rum collection. Who knows, he may even name it in your honour!

4. Young’s Champagne Cocktail Kit – Bahamas

In case you didn’t know, we like our libations here at Eat The Caribbean. Young’s Champagne makes it easy for Dad to whip up classic and fun drinks with their assorted cocktail kits. Choose from the Daiquiri Kit (USD$35) featuring Plantation Rums to a Manhattan Kit (USD$90). Fair warning: Dad may finally have cause to say “driven him to drink”.

5. Coats of Arms Polo Shirts – Guadeloupe

Coats of Arms is a luxury fashion and accessories brand based in Guadeloupe. Their signature polo shirts feature the coat of arms and latitude and longitude of each Caribbean Island. Have dad show his national pride with sophistication. Luckily for Dads everywhere, they are sold throughout The Caribbean with prices ranging between USD$140-USD$170.

6. A round of golf at Casa de Campo   – Dominican Republic

This 7,000 acre hotel, resort and residential community is located on the southeastern coast of the Dominican Republic and is home to the number one golf course in the Caribbean. The “Teeth of The Dog” golf course will satisfy any golf enthusiast.  Added bonus: while Dad’s on the golf course, you can sneak in a relaxing day at the spa, at the beach or shopping!

7.  Love from You
